The Hope of Eternal Life

Good morning, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is the day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it! I had to turn on the A/C yesterday, because the house got so stuffy. Looks like we are zooming right from winter to summer with very little break in between. But from the looks of the crowds at the beaches, it is very welcome for the spring breakers and all others!

Did you all see the awesome "super moon" a couple nights ago? It was a gorgeous orange as it rose and brilliant as it floated across to the west. I saw it this morning, also, shining brightly as it slowly started to set. God created the heavens and the earth and all that is in...Praise Him!

Not many critters were visible as I drove into the Park yesterday. A couple turtles were on the bank of the weir, and something was attracting the attention of 4 0r 5 people who were standing very close to where the gators hang out on the lake bank. There may have been a gator in a different place. But God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

1 Peter 1:3-7
All honor to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, for it is by his boundless mercy that God has given us the privilege of being born again. Now we live with a wonderful expectation because Jesus Christ rose again from the dead. For God has reserved a priceless inheritance for his children. It is kept in heaven for you, pure and undefiled. God, in his mighty power, will protect you until you receive this salvation, because you are trusting him. It will be revealed on the last day for all to see. So be truly glad! There is wonderful joy ahead, even though it is necessary for you to endure many trials for awhile.

These trials are only to test your faith, to show that it is strong and pure.  It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold-and your faith is far more precious to God than mere gold. So if your faith remains strong after being tried by fiery trials, it will bring you much praise, and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world

I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!

Love and hugs,
